According to the information our team has got, another redesigned pickup truck could soon hit the market as a 2019 model. This will be the 2019 Chevy Reaper which will tend to continue its reputation of being a serious rival to other powerful models such as the F-150 Raptor.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Chevy Reaper, the design of this model has been mostly based on the concept of the Chevy Silverado that was released in 2014. The next-generation Reaper will of course keep most of its recognizable off-road features such as powerful, robust and bulky styling, but it will also undergo some minor refreshments and more elegant updates. The chassis of the new Reaper should be made of lightweight materials as it has been the case with most of the current next-generation trucks. That way this Chevy would save some weight and improve its acceleration, overall performance as well as fuel economy. It will be an excellent choice for either your off-road adventures or your on-road everyday activities. This truck will also improve its handling, safety and stability and use the Fox racing suspension. Apart from its exterior changes and updates, the new Reaper will get more aggressive look, especially in the front fascia. You will notice its redesigned square grille with horizontal slats, reworked massive bumper, big square fog lights and the LED headlamps with daytime running lights and high beams. The new Reaper will probably be standing on larger 20-inch wheels.
It seems that the interior of the 2019 Chevy Reaper will a bit more luxurious than you can expect inside a truck like this. The carmaker will seriously improve its cabin and use some high-quality materials, especially in higher trims where the seats will be covered in leather. The front seats will also be power-adjustable and very comfortable. The driver will also get a touch-screen display with the latest Chevrolet My Link infotainment system and numerous modern options such as 4G LTE connectivity and wireless charging. You can also expect LED ambient lighting inside this truck. The new Reaper will also provide necessary safety systems and driver assist features.
When it comes to engine that the 2019 Chevy Reaper gets under its hood, this model might keep using the current 6.2-liter V8 engine that would now be able to deliver up to 550 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque. The other possible option includes the smaller 5.3-liter V8 with its 481 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque. Both engines should be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission as standard, but there has been a word about the new eight-speed as well. The new Reaper will come as an all-wheel drive as standard, but it will also offer an optional rear-wheel drive system.
2019 Chevy Reaper Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Chevy Reaper has still been a mystery, but it should probably be expected in the market by the late 2018. Its estimated price starts from $50,000.
